Woman Thrown from Horse, Down Ravine on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail

King County Search and Rescue (KCSAR) Public Information volunteer Alan LaBissoniere said search crews and the Fall City Fire Department responded to Fall City on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 for an injured woman who was thrown from her horse into a ravine.

LaBissoniere said the call came in around 5PM, after the woman was thrown and fell about 100 feet down the ravine off of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. She reportedly suffered a neck and/or spine injury.

SAR crews used 4×4’s and ATV’s to access the wooded area where the woman landed and brought her out to a waiting ambulance.

LaBissoniere said the woman was in  “a lot of pain” when crews reached her. She was transported to Overlake Hospital.

The rescue operation took about 1 1/2 hours.
